for that is lady time. one last thing to keep an eye on in tomorrow's results here is the last cnn poll out of ohio. it's a cnn poll head to head president obama versus mitt romney in ohio. that shows the president ahead. cnn did the same poll in a slightly different way. rather than doing a head to head match up they polled on the other candidates on the ballot. in that poll he still leads by three. obama 47, romney, 44. gary johnson at 5%. jill stein with 1% and vir jill goode pulling in half a percent. that's not in virginia. that's in ohio. maybe half a percent or gary johnson's 5% will mean nothing. maybe ohio won't even be close. when elections are not close nobody remembers who the third party candidates are. when they are close all of a sudden that might be the most important thing in the world. >>> i brought extra clothes to work with me today. see? if it becomes clear tomorrow that we have to be heading out to colorado or ohio or florida for that matter, because it turns out that's where this thing is going to be decided over a period of days and weeks and months instead of it just being
the second john boehner told him to. so again, what did tom cole do after "hardball"? he went on cnn three hours later and said exactly the same thing and when he was asked what reaction he is getting from his fellow republicans in the house, he said this. >> i think the reaction is mixed. some support it, some don't. some have more questions about it. >> that is as positive a reaction as he could have reported. there are 241 republicans in the house of representatives. the democrats need only 25 of them. to vote the way republican tom cole is now advocating that they vote. john boehner, very clearly wants at least 25 of his members to go the president's way now on taxes and he is very clearly happy to have congressman tom cole lead the what could be called the pro obama wing of the house republicans and solve this tax problem for the republican party. joining me now are msnbc's krystal ball and ryan grimm. kryst krystal, that house of representatives is a soviet style institution. the leadership has those people locked in, especially the traditionalists, the loyal soldiers like cole. boeh
for that is lady time. one last thing to keep an eye on. here's the last cnn poll out of ohio. this came out friday. head to head, president obama versus mitt romney in ohio. that shows the president ahead 50-47. but cnn did the same poll in a slightly different way. rather than just doing a head to head match up, they also polled on the other candidates who were going to be on the pallet. in that one he still leads mitt romney by 3 but it's a way more complicated interesting result. and even goode pulling in half a % in ohio. and maybe half a percent or gary johnson's 5% will mean nothing. maybe ohio won't even be close. when elections are not close, nobody even remembers who the third-party candidates are. but when they are close, all of a sudden, that might be the most important thing in the world. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's i
an interview on the 25th of november to cnn, and at that time senator lieberman referred to rice as having a distinguished career up until now. he says, i don't know how i feel about exactly what was said on television that sunday morning. he too in that interview has similar questions that we saw from other three senators. >> reporter: he's the chairman of the senate homeland security committee, so he has particular standing in this because he has from the beginning called for greater investigation about what went on in benghazi. his committee reached out to susan rice and the administration in the early weeks to get to the bottom of this apparent sort of misdirection, whether it was intentional or not is the political fight. they now acknowledge that there wasn't a spontaneous demonstration, and these senators who are critics want to know why was that the public talking point when those in the administration and intelligence community knew early on this was a terror attack? a lot of what they're focused on also is publicly we see about those sunday show appearances, because susan rice wa

was asked if he would run for president, he told cnn i certainly hope so. rand paul has seen his dad make a few tries at the white house, and now he's dropping a few hints of his own about his future. >> are you interested in thinking about that? >> yes, i'm different than some in that i'm not going to deny that i'm interested. i think we have to go a different direction because we're not winning. >> all right this is awkward. mitt romney might just wind up being part of that infamous 47%. no, not that one. the cooke political report predicts when the final votes from maryland, new york are t l tallied up, governor romney will come up with 47% of the vote. who did the best job of dealing with super storm sandy, a new poll of new yorkers gives praise to new jersey governor chris christie, followed by president obama, new york governor and drooi cuomo and mayor michael bloomberg. sources say joe kennedy iii, robert kennedy's grandson will tie the knot with lauren birchfield. and meet the turkeys being pardoned and pam pefr perampere. they're spending the day at a swanky hotel, and then the

of the campaign. in ohio a brand new cnn poll shows president obama with a 3-point lead over mitt romney, but it is the all-important 50% marker, so it's 50%/47%. good for obama. in new hampshire a new poll from new england college finds president obama with a 6-point lead. that's solid. 50%/44%. in wisconsin a new poll from st. norbert college has the president up 9, 52%/43%. that's a surprise. here is a poll from that hot senate race in indiana. i love this one. joe donnelly of notre dame has an 11-point lead over richard mourdock with the libertarian candidate at 6%. speaking for the democrats, of course. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." we've gotten to the point in this campaign where you count hours, not days, and in this remaining precious time, you can tell where barack obama and mitt romney think this race will be won or lost. just take a look at their travel schedules through election day. for the president, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, and florida, of course. for governor romney, those same seven states plus his newly contested e

cameras about how he couldn't get any information. and when a cnn producer had the good sense to ask senator mccain about why he was yelling about not getting information instead of attending the briefing on his committee where the information was being given out, then he just yelled some more. >> our ted barrett caught up with the senator earlier today and wanted to know why he didn't go to that briefing and to say the least, it did not go well. listen to what happened. >> because i have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me i can or not? i'm not giving you an answer. for the tenth time. >> who the hell are you? this is all going on while john mccain continues to try to make a case that this scandal that he can't get any information about, can't be handled through the normal committee process, that he can't get enough information that way so instead john mccain says there needs to be a water gate style mega investigation. so far that idea has been shot down by the republican speaker of the house, john boehner, by john mccain's own bff in the s
's senior political reporter lois romano and cnn contributor and strategist keith boykin. we touched on comments on morning joe. he released a little more detail. it says in part republicans aren't against tax rate hikes because of one man or a pledge. we're against hiking rates because they're bad for the economy and hurt jobs. our first team points out it seems like the parties are ready to agree to a large point for taxes on the wealthy. the down side is the two sides can not agree on how to raise the taxes on the wealthiest lois. >> i think you've hit the nail on the head. first of all, i don't think they care about throwing groesher norquist under the bus. i don't think the pledge is great de. they can't be on the side of raising taxes for the wealthy. the obama cam paper and now the obama white house has framed this in such a way that all these politicians who had been dug in before are saying, hmm. you know, we've got to do something here because how can you come out and say, no, no, no, let's not tax the rich. the question is as you say how do they get there, and think what t
. in the latest cnn poll, 56% of americans believe that taxes for the wealthy should be raised to help pay for programs such as medicare and medicaid. this is in line with exactly what president obama said on the campaign trail and in his first speech after winning reelection. the president said that we would not balance the budget on the backs of those struging in our society. are those people being asked to bend a little bit despite the tremendous victory that liberals had in november? i think it was november 6th, wasn't it? not real long ago. so here we are setting some dangerous boundaries that liberals have to get inside of if we're going to have a deal and make the republicans happy. are you willing to give up medicare and medicaid, big cuts to make sure that the wealthiest can get away with the tax rates that they want? i'll tell you what, they just don't rest. get your cell phones out. tonight's question, will democrats stand up for the middle class in fiscal live negotiations? text a for yes, b for no. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight peter defa
in this election. but i think he's had a bigger victory than what those numbers indicate and that's in this cnn poll that comes up and it shows today how effective the president's leadership has been on this tax issue because the country agrees with him and more people agree with him than voted for him on this particular issue. it's overwhelmingly in favor of the president's position on this and the republicans are reading that poll and their future is in that poll. >> and the republican party for too long has been driven by their primary electorate. they've been afraid of grover norquist and the tea party coming after them in primaries, but the more we see republicans coming out, reaching across the aisle, there are safety in numbers. so, it looks like there is going to be a genuine move to the center. >> here's what glover is hoping for, that we go off the cliff. then you go off without violating grover's quest. what he needs is the claim his pledge still exists. >> these people are idealogues, but they're also power hungry. he's a washington guy, a lobbiest and wants to find a way out. >> th
on cnn. let's watch. >> i don't see any movement toward ts republicans wanting to raise taxes or people wanting to break their pledge. in fact, to be fair to everybody, some of these people have had impure thoughts. no one has pulled the trigger and voted for a tax increase. >> nothing's changed. he's also lying. they have indeed voted for a tax increase. senator tom coburn introduced last year, a bill in the senate to close the ethanol tax credit. saxby chambliss voted for it and violated their grover norquist pledge for it. >> and also, just by voting for the sequester, they have signalled their willingness to allow steep cuts in defense and tax increases. i mean, he can pretend their clothes are still in his closet and that means they're coming back, but that doesn't mean they're coming back. >> grover norquist is going to be the last person in washington to admit he is irrelevant. it is over, grover. >> yeah, people aren't quick to admit their irrelevance in washington. "wall street journal" board is even pushing grover norquist on this. they said president obama's re-election means
said in a cnn debate to john king, privatize fema. >> right. >> consider turning it over the states. imagine if the states had no backing from washington in this crisis. imagine where they would be. so that's a subtext. i also think that the whole question of infrastructure and first responders and you know these -- >> government employees. >> -- government employees dewried by the republican party in the last couple of years and this again, nas 9/11, coming to the fore, understanding heroic quality and we need them, sometimes we need government to help people and that, as bill clinton and barack obama have been saying, this election is about, are we in this together or is it every person for themselves in. >> this is just to echo the first thing jonathan said, if you flip it around, this is a major republican talking point and they have basis to make this argument. why do you want to re-elect barack obama if they couldn't work across the aisle for four years. suddenly that talking point that argument gets stopped in its tracks by the pictures of barack obama and governor christie.
obama up by six, 50%, 44%. in colorado a new cnn/opinion rerve poll shows preb leading by two. finally to michigan where a new epic poll shows the president ahead by six, 48%, 42%. we'll be right back. with the , the next... stop, stop, stop! my car! not so much. but that's okay. you're covered with great ideas like optional better car replacement from liberty mutual insurance. total your car, and we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. learn about it at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility -- what's your policy? >>> for the past few days all of us have been focused on one of the worst storms in our lifetimes, and we're awed and humbled by nature's destructive power. i was out in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation, and you really get a sense of, you know, how difficult this is going to be for a lot, a lot of people. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was president obama earlier today. voters are overwhelmingly supportive of his handling of the storm. a "washington post"/abc poll shows 78% give him a positive rating for his efforts these pa
now from lima, ohio, with the president speaking right behind her. kristin, a brand new cnn poll has the president at 50%, mr. romney at 47%. how much is the president staking on that state? >> reporter: well, martin, the importance of ohio can't be overstated. as you just pointed out, it is a very close race here. this is the president's firewall in large part because mitt romney is going to have a really tough path to 270 electoral votes without winning ohio. so president obama trying to hold onto this state, in part making the case today about the auto bailout. that is an issue that really resonates with voters, but the president really taking romney to task over his recent claim that jeep is shipping jobs overseas to china. it's a claim the romney campaign is standing by but one that's been smacked down by car executives as well as a number of newspapers here in the buckeye state. so it's a close race. president obama making his closing argument today, martin. >> kristin welker there in ohio. thanks so much. stay with us. our "top lines," the week in review, is coming up. [ femal
the final week of the complain. in ohio a brand new cnn poll shows president obama with a three-point lead over mitt romney, but is it the all-important 50% marker so it's 50%, 47%. good for obama. in a new hampshire a new poll from new england college finds president obama with a 6-point lead. that's solid. 50%/44%. in wisconsin a new poll from st. norbert college has the president up 9, 52%, 43%. that's a surprise. here is a poll from that hot senate race in indiana. i love this one. joe donnelly of notre dame has an 11-point lead over richard mourdock with the libertarian candidate at 6%. speaking for the democrats, of course. we'll be right back. ♪ so you went right back to the pathfinder's essence, kept its dna, and created the next-gen s.u.v. starting with a drivetrain that gives best-in-class fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon, highway... ♪ ...and intuitive 4-wheel drive? ♪ if inside it had best-in-class front, head, and leg room and interior roominess? and outside, best-in-class standard towing of 5,000 pounds? ♪ [ whistles ] [ all scream, laugh ] [ male announcer ] yeah,
in colorado. even cnn was reporting that the crowds were much smaller this year. >> but, tom, you're focused on the closing arguments. >> they are negative, about keeping the other guy out. it's not about enthusiasm with all due respect, mr. mayor, for the candidates on either side. there's great fear in the republican party that obama will get four more years. there's not a passion al love affair with mitt romney. there's been a lot of disappointment in your party with the president of the united states. on the other hand, there's greater fear that mitt romney is going to get into office. so more than any other time that i've been doing all of this, i have seen in the closing days fear take over. and more negative campaigning. it's not about me, it's about keeping the other guy out. i think that's what's going on here. >> savannah, we think about the question, why is it that incumbents lose? you go back to the first president bush. he had a problem with his base. no new taxes. he breaks that pledge. but also a down economy. jimmy carter has a down economy as well. and the reality is, that t
statistic. >> kay bailey hutchison on cnn said we had republican candidate whose got high profile and said stupid things and that tainted the party. there's a shift -- there's a long -- >> don't forget people shouldn't forget after the party moved away from todd akins they came running back when they thought he had a chance to win and lost over 10, 12 points. that's the taint and she and others can't away from and we shouldn't let them. >> we had a couple of people say stupid things, both murdoch and aiken have constituencies. >> method of conception, rape as a method of conception. >> are we a center-right nation? >> no, we're a center nation. period. >> i think that the results on tuesday would prove that theory. a shout out to david corn for the 47% video that -- >> least a point and a half nationally. >> according to governor rendell, wanted to get that shout out. governor rendell, joy, david. david's book "showdown inside story of how obama battled the gop to set up the 2012 election" a mfust-have. governor rendell's book "a nation of wusses." joined by josh green, kurt anderson, lynn

the circumstances surrounding his resignation. the retired general tells cnn his resignation had nothing to do with his scheduled testimony to congress about the 9/11 attack in benghazi. he also said he never shared classified information with paula broadwell, his former mistress. nbc news has obtained this picture of broadwell at an event in late october that petraeus also attended. according to sources this last meeting between the two apparently happened after bro broadwell admitted to the fbi that she and petraeus had an affair. we get our "1st look" at the fbi agent who actually started the investigation that led to the cia director's resignation. this is frederick w. humphreys ii, a personal friend of jill kelley. lawmakers have to wait another day before hearing general petraeus's testimony on benghazi. there were questions of whether the former cia director would take part in the house intelligence committee. instead he will appear behind closed doors with both intelligence committees tomorrow where leaders will zero in on all of the information they have been wanting to get from him.
know, it wasn't going to suit his purposes. he also went off the deep end today when a cnn reporter asked him why he happened to skip that meeting. and you know, just came off as kind of, again, unhinged and very bitter. >> joan and rula, thank you both for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> coming up, another day, another excuse from the former gop kingmaker. but wait until you hear what a gop chairman is saying about voter fraud. and the roots of gift comments, of makers and takers talk, started in 1981. tonight we will reveal lee atwater's full 1981 interview on how gop could appeal to racism without sounding racist. it's a "politics nation" exclusive. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. time
center and the fbi. all players in the room. a democratic aide tells cnn that seven out of nine democratic committee members attended the meeting and just three out of eight republicans showed up. so where was john mccain while his fellow committee members were being given details on benghazi? he was holding a press conference. complaining about the lack of details on benghazi. mccain's office says the senator missed the briefing due to a scheduling error. today, mccain was asked about his absence and the senator got a little testy. he says "i have no comment about my schedule and i'm not going to comment on how i spend my time to the media." hmm. and it got more contentious from there. >> i have no further comment. i have no further comment. how many times do i -- because i have the right as a senator, i have no comment. who the hell are you to tell me? >> joining me now is richard wolffe, msnbc political analyst, and vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. he seems like he's on a mission just to discredit the president if he's not going to show up for the briefing me

of the water. the spokeswoman for the director of national intelligence told cnn the white house wasn't involved in removing the information on al qaeda. he said the intelligence community made the changes. in responding to this report, mccain admitted that he was wrong, but still took a shot at the white house. he said intelligence officials, quote, told us they did not know who made the changes. now we have to read the answers to our questions in the media. this latest episode is another reason why many of us are so suspicious of actions of this administration when it comes to the benghazi attack. meanwhile, his sidekick, lindsey graham, is going into full attack mode. senator graham wrote a letter to president obama on tuesday, saying that he's concerned. many questions remain unanswered on the benghazi attacks. he says the president has a duty to the american people to answer the basic questions surrounding the benghazi attack. so far, all of the right-wing conspiracy theories about the benghazi attack have been completely wrong. it's about time they dropped all of this nonsense a
will ask, is this the best thing the republicans have going for them? we have polling from cnn/orc that asks about a benghazi cover-up. 42% of respondents believe there was a cover-up. 54% believe the statements reflected the information that the white house with susan rice had at the time. >> that poll getses to what the republicans are trying to pull over here. they are trying to suggest that the issue is not what happened in benghazi, not the death of four -- of people working at the american government, including the ambassador and what the state department did, cia did or didn't do, they're trying to suggest what's here is a cover-up that barack obama right before the election wanted to cover up -- well something. i don't know what they're trying to cover up. but he didn't want it to be an act of terror. if he had said this is an act of terrorism, probably would go shooting up in the polls at the time. so there's no sense -- >> he did say it was -- >> there's no point, no sense to their charge of a cover-up. but saying that the state department security office screwed up,
want to show to everybody is that a new cnn poll out shows a majority of americans believe that the white house misstatements were based on the best information that officials had at the time. 40% say there was no cover-up. so jonathan, does this meeting give the senators, you know, because of that? and we look at this poll, i mean how american people feel about this. does this meeting give the senators basically new ground to move forward on to try to discredit or try to claim that there's some type of deeper cover-up that went on prior to the election? >> well, looking at those results, it was -- it would seem to me that, you know, the senators took a big risk here because the majority of the american people think the administration put out information, the best information they had at the time, which is what susan rice did. and i think the other danger for these senators is that they look incredibly petty going after ambassador rice when as doug said and i said and susan recognizes is that the bigger issue here is the security questions and how it was possible that four
